I am a linguist, more precisely a phonologist and phonetician, and my areas of interest include:

Currently, I'm working on the diachronic change in adaptation of English loanwords into Hong Kong Cantonese, and on the influence of orthography onto loanword adaptation in Italian. Furthermore, I'm looking at the restrictions on speech perception by amusics (with Jasmin Pfeifer and Mats Exter). And I work on the phonetics and phonology of Bantu languages (with Nancy Kula and Laura Downing).
